2021, Quarter 4

RENU has teams out constructing add-ons to several buildings on Long Island and the Hudson Valley. While they typically target interior renovations, these additions are an integral part in creating a more functional space for students, the community and faculty in these school buildings. Mamaroneck Day School, Herricks High School, and West Hempstead Middle School are currently in the midst of reconstruction with estimated completions this winter. 

RENU has been busy in Mamaroneck school district having worked in 3 buildings this year. They started on a project in June to connect two existing structures at an elementary school with a 7,380 square foot 3 story addition comprised of ADA classrooms, adjoining hallways, elevators, and custodial space. The entire building will be wheelchair accessible. One of the existing structures contains an all-purpose recreation room where Milburn Flooring will install new flooring. During this renovation, remanence of Hurricane Ida hit New York and the surrounding areas particularly devastating areas of Mamaroneck with disastrous flooding. The cafeteria, classrooms, and gymnasiums suffered up to 10 feet of water damage requiring RENU’s emergency service division to act immediately providing abatement, demolition, and reconstruction to the affected areas. Despite the unforeseen damage in other areas of the building, RENU is expected to complete the addition by January 2022.

Herricks High School is currently under construction as well with a new 3,700 square foot athletic fitness center addition and approximately 200 square feet of interior upgrades. This project began November of 2020 and should also be completed by January 2022. The building sits on a hilltop which RENU widened to accommodate not only the addition but also a Fire Access roadway for emergency vehicle use. With blue accents on all athletic room exterior windows and door frames, the existing building’s brick exterior now matches the new gray brickwork. The gray corrugated metal siding panel offers an industrial look. Milburn Flooring installed Terrazzo and VCT flooring and rubber performance flooring in the athletic room.

West Hempstead Middle School is adding on 1,800 square feet to the school’s gymnasium, offering more space for bleachers and to accommodate more fans. This project started in September of 2021 and should be finished February 2022. West Hempstead chose to forgo a full rip up and replacement of the gym floor and instead Milburn Flooring is working on an adaptive gym, weaving new maple wood flooring in with the existing maple floor and then sanding to blend. 

RENU built a new frame, completed masonry work leaving rough openings temporarily covered while installing the EPDM roofing. A makeshift wall was elevated between the gym and outside. To protect materials from the elements the existing floors were covered with multiple weatherized layers and withstood the conditions of two major weather events. All overhead work including electrical, plumbing, roof drains and HVAC will be connected and duct work connected to all RTUs. Once the space is conditioned the flooring can then be installed followed by the new bleachers and curtain wall divider.
